A week had passed since Luke left. She didn’t know how she’d cope if Dawn had not been there to catch her every time she nearly fell into a well of self-pity.

Millenia Black is a mistress at neatly laying out each part of the story, like building an elaborate building that forms a fascinating whole. She clearly and succinctly draws verbal pictures of each character and their interrelationships with each other. A thought provoking, extremely well-written book, this one will haunt your thoughts long after you've finished the novel.

Millenia Black’s, The great Betrayal is filled with love, lost, and of course disloyalty on so many levels. As the life and secrets of Leslie Cavanaugh unfolds, readers are thrown into this romantic love story that will have their cheeks turning crimson red; until her life spirals out of control and Leslie makes decisions that turn her world upside down. The Great Betrayal is one of those books you can't put down until the end. I had to know how things would turn out for Leslie, she was seriously troubled from the tragedy that happened right at the beginning. That loss was like a cloud hanging over the rest of the novel and the twist at the end is CRAZY but totally plausible.

By all appearances, the Cavanaughs of West Palm have an ideal marriage and family life-the perfect home with few complications. Leslie, the beautiful mother, shines brightly in corporate America. Her adoring husband, Luke, is movie-star handsome and an award-winning architect. Their privileged daughter, Kathryn, enjoys the best that life has to offer. But castles built on sand are eventually washed away by the sea. Leslie Cavanaugh is not who she claims to be-she's a woman with a painful secret that's about to shake the entire family to its core. And she's not the only one playing a game of deception. Her daughter is risking more than the family's good name with her search for love and attention in all the wrong places, and Leslie finds the unmistakable clues that her husband is having an affair. As she struggles to hold her family together, nothing can prepare her for the most intimate betrayal of all.

Five stars for a well-written story that seamlessly weaves times and places together into one heck of a ride. The topic and content got a bit too dark toward the end for my taste, and I wondered why the characters were put through such gut-wrenching emotional trauma. But if I'm honest with myself, I know that's life sometimes, and just because it's unpleasant to be faced with difficult issues in a story is no reason to punish the author with a bad rating. Their job as a writer isn't to cater to my every literary whim, it's to put down a well-crafted story with solid characters that keep me involved in the book until the very end and leave me wanting more.

A job well done in this case.

If you're looking for a light and flirty beach read, this may not be for you. If you enjoy deeply moving stories that leave you somehow changed for having read them, The Great Betrayal does this quite well. The author covers disturbing topics without holding back, yet does so with grace. If you've experienced the loss of a loved one, been betrayed by someone you thought would never hurt you, or made life-changing and heartbreaking decisions about your family, this book may touch a nerve. If you've never experienced the deep, personal pain that comes from going through things like that, read this book and take from it an appreciation that life, while it can be painful, can also be uplifting and carries with it--always--the possibility of redemption.

I absolutely loved this novel, and I didn't expect to, which is even better. I'm just not a big fan of family drama stories because in my opinion they tend to be melodramatic. However, this one is filled with fully-developed and raw characters and has a rich plot; I enjoyed this so much I finished it in one day.
I like the dimension the author was able to give to each character. No one is inherently good or bad, which make them seem all the more real.
The buildup was satisfyingly paced, and the relationships well-established enough to get the reader hooked to the story.
The ultimate clincher for me is the climax, which is something I honestly never saw coming. Seeing how some of the reviewers mentioned they knew it from the start, I sort of feel a bit silly now. Still, two thumbs up!

This book takes you on a woman's journey of a life lost, but not just one life but two. I believe she died that day as well. I don't want to give to much away. It's really hard when reviewing a book to not scream out all the details that you found exciting or sad. The very best thing I can do or say is please go and check out this book you'll not be disappointed. To the author please please make a part 2.

This book kept flipping back and forth, at first I wasn't feeling it but the more I read, the more I wanted to read. This book had my emotions racing. I will definitely be buying more of her books. This was the ultimate...big payback!

Leslie - her husbands dies, she takes off....Dawn- her husband dies, but she won't let him rest...will they ever be able to find that special type of love again? You gotta read to find out.

This is Millenia's second book - and is a really good read. Leslie Cavanaugh is a successful business woman, married to a gorgeous man called Luke, and they have a daughter Kathryn. They have a wonderful life - but Leslie has a secret - and she has been deceiving her family, as well as herself. When the secret is discovered, the Cavanaugh's world comes apart. As the family learns to deal with the past - Luke and Kathryn start to cover up their own secrets. But only one will commit the ultimate great betrayal.

This book is very well written. It successfully evokes intense emotional pain and conveys to the reader how differently people all react to trauma. Each of the characters are very real and the four main characters each have their own misfortune to face - and some of the events that happen are quite shocking. Millenia has been able to bring all the threads together, travelling between the past and the present skilfully - to produce a can't put down until you're finished novel.
Totally unexpected plot. A wonderful story of life and the unexpected turns it can take. Loved the way it focused on family and friends
